Campaign tackles littering in San Marcos River

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

With more people than ever flooding into Central Texas, our rivers are experiencing higher numbers of visitors. And with that comes all the usual problems: littering, trespassing, noise violations, underage drinking and public intoxication. In an effort to combat that, the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics has named the Lower San Marcos River as a national hot spot to raise “awareness about outdoor recreation ethics” in our open spaces. Next month, the group, in conjunction with state Sen. Judith Zaffirini (D-Laredo), will host a week of events that will include a river tour, training sessions and outreach events. Find out more, plus a full schedule of the events, on the group’s website.
